Sonic Seance


V/DA present a work in progress of Sonic Seance - A vent of desperation, a projection of aggression, a calling for support. A story of empowerment. A speech of truth. A cocktail of venerability. We have been moulding, shaping and cleaning ourselves to suit the imperialist gaze. The gaze that does not know or understand but still dominates. Emended in this hypnotic, sound awakening, emotional jerking song of sorts is movement and dance which will be presented as choreographic visual concert.


Company: LETITIA PLEIADES activist, dancer, musician, DJ and artist; PATRICIA PANTHER actress,  singer/songwriter and composer; ASHANTI HARRIS an artist and researcher working with dance, community activist, performer and installation; MELE BROOMES dancer, choreographer, teacher and experimental vocalist.


Company Class | Thursdays 7 & 14 March | 10.00 – 11.30

Ashanti - Drawing from traditional West African and Caribbean dance vocabulary, this class is a conversation between the past and the present.

Mele - Twist and turn. Lengthen and strengthen. Flex and float. Compress, grind, whine and wave your body.
